About Us – Piper Magic

About Us

Who the heck is Piper Magic?

Established in January 2017, Piper Magic is the brainchild of lifelong magic fan, Sean Piper. Based out of Brisbane, Australia, the goal here is to supply Australian magicians with high-quality apparatus, classic books, and a wide range of unique and collectible pre-owned magic. 

Do we have a shopfront?

Nope. Retail rentals in Australia can be exorbitant, and to keep our prices low, overheads are kept to a minimum. Piper Magic is online only and unfortunately we cannot accommodate showroom visits at this time.

To inspect collectible or valuable pre-owned items, please contact me directly to arrange an inspection.

 

Are you a discount store?

Our prices are lower than most for a number of reasons; predominantly we buy in bulk and peg our prices against US retail. Historically it's been super-expensive to purchase magic locally... I'm hoping to change that!

I have no intention to be the "Reject Shop" of the magic world. I'm simply charging what items should cost. You save, and pay only domestic shipping!

 

Do you price match?

Sure thing. I'm happy to match any advertised price by an established Australian magic retailer. The product must be in stock and not on clearance. If unsure, just drop me a line

I'm also happy to get as close as possible to US retail prices. For example, if you've seen an item on Penguin Magic but you'd rather support local business, get in touch and see what we can do.

 

Why don't you carry *insert generic item here*?

I don't intend to range the widest array of products, nor will I stock every new item... because 90% of it is a little bit average. Instead, I carry tricks, books & DVD's that I believe are of high quality based on user feedback and global reviews.

We will also grow the collection over time, so if you're looking for something specific (ie: Sponge Ding Dong), while I wouldn't normally carry it, I'm happy to get one in for you... if that's your thing. Not judging!

 

Do you have everything listed in stock?

Everything listed on this website is available and ready to ship out within 48 hours, unless clearly marked as Pre-Order. In the event our inventory system falls over and you order an item that has sold out, I'll personally contact you as soon as possible. You'll then be able to choose another item, place the item on back order, or request a refund.

Be aware that the majority of my pre-owned items are one-offs, and once sold, they're gone for ever.
 

Can I special order?

Yep. Special orders will be accommodated as much as possible. Contact me directly to get a price and availability. Lead time varies between 1 to 4 weeks, depending on availability with the supplier.

I'm also happy to try and source rare/vintage/unique items that are tough to find. Email me with any requests.
